Change How Tracks Are Viewed?


I am running Audacity 2.3.3 on Windows 11. I am looking at a track of audio but instead of the jagged waves I see only dots indicating the track sounds

even though I select Wave form db. When I select Wave form the dots are just closer to the line. How do I get to see the whole wave pictured (

You need to zoom out.
For example, to view the full project, press “Ctrl + F”.
Other ways of zooming include “Ctrl + Mouse wheel” (my personal favourite).

For more ways of zooming in / out, see:


Ok - Thanks for your help!
